So you are searching for plus
size bridesmaid dresses for the full figured women in your bridal party. The
challenge is to flatter their silhouettes and the other bridesmaid’s figures too
while making them all look like they belong in the same wedding party. No
problem! This is a challenge that is
easy to overcome.
Today’s bridesmaid dresses offer styles, fabrics and designs
that flatter varying body shapes and sizes. And you don't have to break everyone's wallet either to find dresses that will make all your girls happy. You can rest assured that you will be able to find affordable bridesmaid dresses and even cheap bridesmaid dresses that will look stunning (but not more stunning than you) on your wedding day.
And if you like to be a little edgier and not have the exact same dress style for each bridesmaid, then you can choose different styles to accentuate or downplay features of each woman. You can unify their look with the color scheme, fabric, dress length and accessories.
Be prepared before you shop though. You will need to stand your ground and have a pretty good idea what styles look good on different body shapes and sizes. So read on so you can start picking out plus size bridesmaid dresses you love and know will make your girls look and feel beautiful too. You do want them to smile for your pictures ---right?
Most women, regardless of size, fall into one of the five body shape categories: Hourglass, Pear, Inverted Triangle and Apple. To become familiar what works and doesn't work in dressing these silhouettes, go to this link What is my body shape? to learn more. You of course will have a salesperson who will be able to guide you when it comes to picking out wedding party dresses for your girls, but it is always a good idea to know what you like and don't like beforehand.
Finally, when the time comes to have your bridesmaids try on dresses, make sure they look proportionate from top to bottom. Also, have them bring along shapewear, a supportive bra or corset and shoes with heels. It all adds to the final look and will help you make the right decision.
